My On Demand Services aren't working properly, and I have a problem with the Virgin TV Control App also. I've switched everything off & on again, but still is doesn't work properly. Netflix, via channel 204, loads, takes ages to start a programme & then, if it does play, constantly buffers. I have done a 'Check Your Network' in Netflix & everything is fine, but tells me I have zero speed, I have also tried Netflix & Disney+ via the LG TV apps, & similar happens on there also.
The TV Control App works, but I can't get the guide on it, as it tells me the V6 box & the app are not connecting & to turn this Off & On again. I have done that & it still won't show the Guide, the Remote Control does work.
Has anyone else experienced the same problem and found a solution. The TV also comes up with the error code C501, when trying the main Home page menu for the On Demand services & the help page suggests to Contact Virgin Media. I don't wish to hang on the telephone helpline too long tomorrow morning, as I am supposed to be 'working from home.'
I did this yesterday evening, & as far as I can recall, the box said everything was working okay.
I called the help desk, took just under 60 minutes (59:35 to be exact) to get to talk to someone. He done stuff over at his side, but the 'On Demand' is still not working as it should. Connection speed is what it should be & everything else works fine, takes a bit of time to delete recordings, and the Guide in the TV Control App doesn't populate, but comes up with a message saying roughly 'is the box on, have you checked settings etc..' He said it sounds like the box has developed a fault & has booked an engineer to swap the box over. If this happens (we've been moved into tier 36 since then) what happens to my unwatched recordings.
Also, if it is the V 6 box causing this how does that affect trying to watch On Demand things like Netflix & Disney+ via the apps on the LG TV.
Thanks, that's what I thought re using the apps via the Smart TV. They should have no interaction with the TV box at all. Something I did mention at the time, but forgot to follow up later in the call. Yes, have got pen & paper ready to note down all recorded shows & forthcoming series records. We#ll see what the engineer discovers on Friday.
Okay, I have hard reset everything by turning off & on again via the wall plugs. Seemed to have worked, as am now watching a Simpson episode on Disney+ via the Smart TV app. No problems loading in the programme, no pixelation. Also the TV control app now populated the Guide with channels & programme information. I will test put Netflix via the TV app & then try the On Demand section on the Virgin TV box. Next, should I cancel the engineer visit, probably in my estimation.
My On Demand does not work when I change from default DNS servers in router settings (I'm in modem mode so the change is on my non-Virgin router). If you are using OpenDNS or Google or Cloudflare or similar then default back and try again.
